that hurt romney is that you and rick santorum were helped by these super pacs and stayed in long enough that kind of bled romney dry, allowed you to attack him, to say these things that i said before and also depleted his campaign coffers. did the super pacs hurt republicans more than they helped them? >> i had one billionaire, a good friend and a person who's deeply passionate about --. >> stephen: great friend to have. billionaires are some of the best to have. >> i'd like to have ten or 15. romney had about 26. it turned out 26 billionaires beat one. this was a great revelation to us. (laughter) so i think romney --. >> stephen: sounds like a great reality show "billionaire fight." (laughter) >> we just had it, it was called the election.

. think back to march, when rick santorum looked to have an edge over mitt romney and before the president started campaigning. safe the say a lot has changed since then, but safe to say that a lot hanlt changeded since then. as the president begins his second term, the balance of power in congress, same old, same old and his approval rating, got a poll just taken before election day, and it shows that his rating sit at 51%. back where it was in march. in just over two hour, president obama is going to address the nation from the east room and our brianne keilar joins us from the white house. i don't know what the president has on his agenda, whether there is an agenda for what he's going to say, whether we're going to hear about petraeus, allen, ben gadsy, all of the above, none of the above. what is it? >> i would say all of the above and really, it's sort of what is on the agenda of the reporters who will be asking questions. you said it's been more than eight months since the full length press conference. the president did have an abbreviated one in june at the g-20 in mexico. he had a
director for rick santorum's presidential campaign. great to have you here and ruth, petraeus now testifying or will be testifying on capitol hill. does this bring it all back to the original story and the attention and focus where it needs to be about what happened in benghazi, the loss of four american diplomats and away from this salacious sexual scandal. >> i think you answered your own question. i say this with a bit of regret and also a bit of humor, as between dealing with serious substantive questions whether it's benghazi or the fiscal cliff and salacious sexual scandal, i know which we think is going to get the attention and especially this story which is developing into some combination of real housewives of centcom meets "homeland," it's just too sordidly delicious not to have us spending, us in the immediate yashgs spending some time figuring out what in the heck was going on here. i do have to say i really think there are a lot of important questions to be dealt with at the news conference beyond the petraeus matter. there's not a lot that the president can say or ad
santorum was the candidate, and michele bachmann as well. it was just so up and down, you know, that's part of the way the democrat system works going state by state and fight for it. there's benefit to that. every voter in new hampshire got a perm visit with mitt romney, michele bachmann, herman cain, it forces you to do that, but in a primary, you wouldn't have the opportunity as a voter or the candidates wouldn't have that challenge to have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there's good and bad parts of it, but, yeah, it does create some challenges, no question. >> on the super packs on the republican side spent over $700 million, something like that, and it looks like, you know, aachieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted so where does that leave that system, and what does that say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome. with that much money with no return on it. >> a couple thoughts, one, you help me op this because there's an editorial about it or somebody wrote it for him, he's too important to write his own anymore. [laughter]

news conference, rick santorum appeared to have the edge over mitt romney in republican primaries, and the first campaign reallily was two months away. that was back in march 6th. fast forward to today we want to bring in briana keiller. it's expected that the fiscal cliff is going to be a big topic, but also the scandal that broke about the former cia chief, david petraeus. how does the president essentially stay on message and move on to the economy? >> well, is he going to be trying to turn this to the economy, suzanne, but the fact is he will be definitely getting questions about the scandal, about general petraeus, and certainly about his faith in general allen, so that is going to be a topic. he will try to pivot to the economy and to talk about the fiscal cliff, which is obviously his number one priority trying to get that resolved, and we also expect that he will be here talking -- or he will be asked about benghazi. this will be his first press conference since that september 11th attack in egypt that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. as well
